What's in a name?


Okay, I did it, too. I jumped on the blogging bandwagon. I couldn't resist any longer. Now hopefully, I have enough to say to make it worth it.

So what's in a name? I believe it was Shakespear who said, "A rose by any other name would still smell as sweet." So after much deliberation, "The Brown Eyes Have It" is what I came up with. And why? Because of the fact that 6 out of 8 in our family have beautiful, dark chocolate eyes. Cheyenne and I don't. The triplets are very interested in eye color lately and love to name everyone with brown eyes. Bill used to sing "My Brown Eyed Girl" to Natalie when she was a baby and then started singing it again to Chloe and Maddie. Natalie was thrilled when I found her a shirt that said, "Everyone loves a brown-eyed girl," and was even more excited when I found smaller ones for Chloe and Maddie. No one ever sings songs or raves about green eyes.

So around our house, when the battle begins of what color eyes is the best, green always gets out voted and the brown eyes have it.

Very impressed with your blog...now I can see all those cute kids more often. I like your music choices. But, there is nothing wrong with green eyes. Especially bright green like yours. (I won't repeat what color Bill calls mine)...

Kim, I love your song choices and your blog. I don't even know how to add songs, so you have me beat there.
